The Wild Now is an Austin, TX based duo consisting of Taylor Baker and Drew Walker. The two met in 2013 at a Local Natives show at the city’s annual SXSW Music Festival. Following that fateful day in March, the two began writing and recording songs under the moniker Taylor & the Wild Now. Success came sooner rather than later, as the two won American Songwriter’s Sole Performer award in 2014 and toured the country playing shows. The duo shortened their name to The Wild Now in 2016. Combining Taylor’s dreamy, yet powerful vocals with Drew’s intricate guitar work, the duo solidified their breezy indie pop sound. Key tracks from the EP, “Salt” and “Gold Dust,” found homes on a variety of Spotify playlists and have accrued over 2 million combined streams, to date.
